Broncos Running Back To Have Larger Role This Week

It's an absolute mess in the backfield for the Denver Broncos this season.

Broncos offensive coordinator Justin Outten said he ''absolutely'' sees Boone having a larger role this week against the Kansas City Chiefs. 

''The second week back I see him going up,'' Outten said. Boone is entering his second week back after a five-week stint on the injured reserve.
Boone played 12 snaps in the team's 10-9 loss and carried the ball six times for 18 yards along with one reception for eight yards. He worked ahead of Marlon Mack, but firmly behind Latavius Murray.

Murray isn't likely to lose his role as the starting running back, but expect to see the gap in usage between him and Boone shrink this week.

Over eight games this season, the twenty-seven-year-old has 100 rushing yards on 21 attempts.
